Counter post to Who are some accomplished photographers that you enjoy? Post about who you don't like, or don't get, etc. Remember, the keyword here is "accomplished", so no knocking the kid in college photo I class who spent a semester photographing their feet.

For me

- Richard Prince. Sure, his work has sold for a $1,000,000. But when that print is just a flippen photo of the Marlboro man out of a magazine. . . ugnf. I felt violated knowing I paid money to go to the Walker when I walked into his exhibit of appropriated art.

- Anne Geddes - For real, her stuff makes my skin crawl. Joel-Peter Witkin's work doesn't even disturb me as much.

Alright, well I'm agreeing with Kip on Anne Geddes.
That shit has ALWAYS creeped me out... and I'll always remember how much I hate her work ever since I saw it+celine dion. (blegh)

Ansel Adams. Now I'm not saying that he doesn't know how to use a camera. By all means. But I can not find one piece of his art that makes me feel the slightest bit of emotion except bored. Landscapes just aren't my thing anyway. I'm sorry Ansel, I will never have an emotional attachment to any of your work. Even if we do share the same birthday.

I have to agree on Anne Geddes. Her stuff is creepy and way overdone.
